If you are needing a prescription for services that will either be billed to Health Insurance, Personal Injury Protection or Labor and Industry, here is a form to bring or email to your Doctor. They may require you to go in for an appointment for the Rx but some if you have been in recently will provide over the phone. The Rx can then be e-mailed or faxed back to our office.
Many Health Insurances will claim you can self refer but due to the fact that Massage Therapists can not diagnose, an Rx is needed. We must be sure it is medically necessary so that the insurance will not come back and deny payment which would cause you out of pocket expenses to us.
Benefits for massage therapy covered by health insurance is for rehabilitation massage only and not for maintenance massage. Maintenance massage is not covered by any health insurance as it is not medically necessary.
